Are Your Industrial Rolling Steel Doors Winter-Ready?

Cold temperatures, howling winds, snow, ice, and salt – commercial overhead doors on your loading bays need to handle wild winter weather. During the winter, a malfunctioning or damaged overhead door can not only slow down your operations, but it can also expose your facility to the elements, possibly damaging your product and increasing heating costs. The good news is that O’Brien Lifting Solutions not only service, sell and install quality sectional, rubber and rolling steel doors that stand up to the worst winter has to offer, but we also provide expert inspection, maintenance, and 24-hour emergency repair services.

Contact O’Brien Lifting Solutions to ensure your commercial overhead doors are working the best they can, all winter long.

What Makes Commercial Rolling Steel Doors Winter Ready?

Commercial overhead doors are made for a variety of conditions, from warmer humid climates to colder wintry weather. When O’Brien assesses your needs, they’ll look at features like:

  • Door speeds – significant heat can be lost when doors open during the winter. Faster door speeds can help minimize exposure to the cold.
  • Dock Seals / Shelters – if your trucks are waiting a long time in the bays, properly-functioning airtight seals and shelters can make a huge difference to heating bills.
  • Insulation – overhead doors can be insulated, offering further protection from the outdoor elements.

Roll up rubber doors are best suited for sites located in harsh environments, with high pressure, wind load, and door impact concerns. Whether you are looking for high-traffic rubber roll up door solutions suitable for parking garages, or extra-large size doors suited for industrial applications, we can provide the best solution for your location.

Many parts must fit together and work smoothly for the most efficient door solution. At O’Brien, we know that the right system allows you to move equipment, material, and product smoothly. We are experts in selecting, installing, and maintaining the equipment that keeps your business moving.
